A brilliant first season from the Simpsons. The jokes are clever without ever laboring the point, the stories are fresh and the character development and story development are excellent. It's not packed full of wacky stories or celeb cameos like the later series. Some of the animation is a touch basic and Homer is more the grouchy father than the childish man-child he soon develops into.

The Simpsons are presented as flawed, dsynfuctional yet loveable family. They worry about money, have difficulty with parenting, have marital problems and sometimes struggle with envy for other families, the audience can instantly recognize themselves in the characters. Some of the themes are heavy, such as depression and adultery, but they are tackled in a sensitive & accessible way. I should also say the pop culture references are pretty funny and never felt dated to me.

In this first season when we meet the family home has a good job, only one adult works in the family, they live in a nice neighbourhood. Despite this they still have money trouble, and are somewhat jealous of their neighbours, the Flanders.
The early animation is bright and colourful without being overbearing. Some of the pop culture references like An officer and a gentleman make you question if this show was aimed at kids or adults. The soundtrack is always simple but effective.

One of my all time favorite shows, the older Simpsons episodes are by far the best. I would suggest to anyone who like's the Simpson's if they are going to invest in the dvd's to buy the first series, brilliant watch!
